Anyone have experience with Amano Shrimp breeding?

My Amano shrimp has got her 3rd batch of eggs under her belly and until yet I havent been able to save any eggs with the previous two times she has been pregnant. So do I put her in a separate tank with Java Moss and let her drop her eggs and then move the eggs into a tank with brackish water??? Cause I have a feeling she does drop her eggs but the rest of the fish probably have eaten them all.

Amano shrimp larvae require salt water to develop, then a gradual transition to fresh. More trouble than they're worth, and it's only been done successfully a few times.
